Forum: texts Subject: The search engine encountered the following error: Search engine returned invalid information or was unresponsive.

For the last 48 hours, each time I attempt to initiate a Text search I receive the following error report:

The search engine encountered the following error: Search engine returned invalid information or was unresponsive. We are working to resolve this issue. Thanks for your patience.

I appreciate that I must be patient, but wondered if there might be some other explanation. I am currently researching a very broad area with over 9000 hits which I am painstakingly making my way through. I have also downloaded quite a number of texts during the process and thought perhaps I had reached some threshold or limit. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

They are moving servers to a new location and only the backup servers are active. This means no uploading, and limited search functionality.

So it's not you, its everyone!

Thanks Bloodwize. It all seems to be back to normal today.

Thank you for the update, however, it would have been very pro-active if the person/persons who manage this invaluable website had put a notice on the home page letting folks know that this is happening.
